This month was our anniversary and I know a lot of couples are celebrating their anniversary during the summer as well, so I thought I'd put together this post. Although I'm writing it with our anniversary and other summer anniversaries in mind, I hope that it becomes a resource for couples celebrating their anniversary all times of the year.
We used to feel like we needed to go to Salt Lake to find something that felt special enough for our anniversary date night. Now that I know everything Davis County has to offer, I know that I was wrong. There are so many fun and unique things to do in our area and I wanted to share them with you. Whether you're looking for a romantic dinner or a fun adventure, one of these ideas below is guaranteed to fit your anniversary date night needs.
Anniversary Dinner Locations in Davis County
Each of these have great food and the perfect atmosphere for a special occasion.
ti amo wood fired pizza - North Salt Lake - Their atmosphere is romantic and cozy, and they serve authentic Italian pizza. Ti amo is the phrase used when you love someone deeply, perfect for an anniversary celebration. Please note that they're only open for dinner, check their hours before you go.
Joy Luck - Bountiful - Delicious Contemporary Chinese Cuisine in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. We love to order their Classic Family Dinner because we love the full meal that includes appetizers, soup/salad and two different entrees that we can share.
Mikkado - Bountiful - Sushi and other Japanese cuisine. We have yet to try sushi (I know, crazy) but I've been told that this is one of the best places to go to get it. I also know that sushi is a food that a lot of people eat when they want to celebrate something. Click here for more of the best places to get sushi in Davis County.
Twigs Bistro - Farmington Station Park - The atmosphere here is definitely perfect for a special occasion. The tables are all situated in a way that you feel comfortable talking without anyone overhearing any of your conversation and you are about to focus on each other without potentially being distracted by other diners around you.
Tortilla Union - Farmington Station Park - I have yet to take my husband to this restaurant, but I went with a friend and was really impressed with the atmosphere and the food. If you're looking for a more casual date night location, this is a restaurant worth checking out.
Settebello Pizzeria - Farmington Station Park - Authentic Italian pizza and gelato, a great atmosphere, a patio for those who want to eat outside and the fountains right outside the restaurant to finish off your date.
Parkstone Wood Kitchen - Farmington Station Park - Wood fired cuisine that you'll both enjoy. I suggest ordering different things and being willing to share what you've ordered so that you can each have a taste of everything on the table. We got seated by the kitchen once and it was fun to watch them cook our foot, plus we were apart from the rest of the restaurant so it was a more intimate dinner.
Cracker Barrel - Layton - This is a great option for a breakfast date if you're interested in that kind of anniversary celebration.
Corbin's Grille - Layton - We love this place for our date nights, it's one of my husband's favorites. The booths are secluded and the food is delicious and splurge worthy.
